We pride ourselves on offering skilled, aggressive and prudent representation. The firm engages in general civil trial practice in state and federal courts throughout Washington as well as in administrative proceedings. Unlike some firms that advertise their “litigation departments,” Lee Smart’s practice is litigation. As a result, our lawyers possess a wealth of experience from actually trying cases, distinguishing us from many other firms. 

Our attorneys have extensive experience defending all types of claims and entities including premises liability, construction liability, product liability, hospitality liability, toxic-tort claims, and fire and property-damage subrogation. In addition, we have decades of experience in defending all types of professionals, including physicians, dentists veterinarians and other health care providers, as well as attorneys, accountants, architects, engineers, appraisers and real estate and insurance agents and brokers.

Our firm has handled a large volume of insurance-coverage issues for both insurers and policyholders. We have provided insurer clients with coverage evaluations and advice and have litigated many insurance-coverage actions.

We also have a sizable appellate practice. Our lawyers have appeared before all divisions of the Washington State Court of Appeals, the Washington Supreme Court, several districts and circuits of the United States District Court and Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.

For decades, Lee Smart has defended individuals, businesses, municipalities and professionals in all areas of civil claims.
